For centuries, people all over the world have enhanced their physical presence to add value to the way they appear and how others perceive them. Every society has cultivated and promoted ideals that define and qualify beauty through clothing, textiles, haircuts, jewelry, body paintings and tattoos. Adornment, however, refers not only to an object and its cultural meaning and relevance; it also encapsulates the entire state of adorning.

Adornment is curated by Yvonne Osei, artist and COCA Curator in Residence.
